Tour Information

The Adriatic coast self guided motorcycle tour is a don’t miss opportunity to visit the ‘French Riviera of Eastern Europe’. It is always a popular holiday choice.

The holiday starts with a short Channel Tunnel crossing. You’ll ride across Holland as well as Germany to board the overnight Motorail to Austria.

By using this quick and efficient rail service you will be able to get much faster to central Europe. This allows you to spend more time at your destinations.

Next morning you’ll continue your journey across the Austrian Alps and arrive in Ljubljana. The Slovenian capital city with its blend of history, rich culture and traditional cuisine is second to none. It also proudly wears a label of being the greenest capital in Europe.

Your free time here can be used to take a stroll to the town center to visit some of its many tourist attractions.

Scenic ride through the back roads of lush green farmland and forests of Slovenia will take you to Croatia. On route you can also visit the fantastic Plitvice National Park. It is a unique complex of sixteen lakes and countless interconnected waterfalls. It also has a status of the World Heritage Site.

The journey continues in the direction of the Adriatic coast. Your next overnight destination is a four star hotel located near a small fishing port. The hotel has its own excellent restaurant as well as a range of sports and leisure facilities.

From now on navigation is simple. Keep the sea to the right and the mountains to the left. And keep riding all the way to Dubrovnik. It is also often referred to as the pearl of Adriatic. Your base for the next three nights is a small coastal town south of Dubrovnik.

You may choose to take a boat trip to Dubrovnik on your day off. Here you can take a tour of the old walled city. It will reveal its finest sites such as the Franciscan Monastery as well as Dubrovnik’s Cathedral with its famous Treasury. Also why not consider joining a Game of Thrones walking tour. Or take a cable car at sunset or visit the famous Rector’s Palace.

If you take a fancy you can also take a ride to Montenegro, the smallest state in the Balkans.

On your way back, with two overnight stops, you will ride the entire length of the fantastic Adriatic coast. Just follow the majestic blue seas to your left and stunning mountain ranges of Biokovo, Mosor and Velebit to your right.

Your next destination is the coastal resort of Porec. The accommodation is in a comfortable hotel near the marina. It has a restaurant, bar as well as safe parking. On your day off you can visit the remains of the Roman amphitheatre in Pula. Also the old town of Rovinj and Hum (the smallest city in Europe numbering only seventeen residents). And finally the medieval hilltop town of Groznjani which is also an artist colony.

No visit to Croatia would be complete without ordering a fish platter featuring the best of the local catch, real feast.

Leaving Croatia behind and once more and entering Slovenia the scenery will noticeably change from Mediterranean to Alpine. The most evident is at Postojna. Which is also the sight where the spectacular Postojna cave system is found. It has a fantastic web of tunnels, passages, galleries and halls. As well as astonishing diversity of cave ornaments and features. Time allowing, you might decide to pop to Bled. With its tranquil mountain location and the island church in the middle of the lake is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Slovenia.

Your holiday might be coming to the end but it is not completely finished yet. On your way back to Innsbruck your route will take you across the stunning Italian Dolomites. It is a great end to a great holiday.
